Google Search Ranking Success

Following on from our recent successes with improving the search result rankings for Dry Island and The Gables we are now beginning to see a simliar improvement in search rankings for John Bullock Lighting Design too.

Our recent conversion of John's website from a static brochure site to our own Simple CMS (content management system) has brought about some excellent results. He is now listed 4 times on the top 2 pages of Google for "Dorset Lighting Design" and the traffic to his site has begun to rise accordingly.

Bringing about these positive effects is a collaborative process. John has written about his experiences of this process on his blog: As with all good things there is work to be done to achieve positive results, and John's excellent articles and discussions along with his superb image gallery and portfolio are making his site a hub of information about light and lighting in Dorset and farther afield.

Alongside generating great content there is a whole world of technical stuff to sort out with SEO (search engine optimisation). This is our area of specialism. We have built the CMS to be as good as possible when it comes to making friends with Search Engines. It gives them oodles of useful and on-topic information to index, building up the credibility rating of the site as a real destination and authority on the site's topic; in John's case this is of course Light and Lighting Design.

The final piece of the jigsaw is the bit that we both work on together. We offer advice and input on how best to structure information for presentation on the site to get the best possible results for the site. This not only covers the content and structure of the site itself, but also the ways in which to boost the site's profile on the web more generally. This includes finding suitable social networking and commercial directories on which to list the site. We can advise on the best tactics to use on these third party sites to get maximum benefit from your listing.

If you're interested in finding out whether we can make a difference to your site then please give me a ring on 01300 320076 or drop me an email:


New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
